SOLD OUT! 11th Annual Halloween at the Heard: A Family Fun Night Fundraiser

Heard Halloween 2017
Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary

NBC 5 and the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary invite you to experience Halloween at the Heard, Collin County’s premier family-friendly event at the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary on Saturday, October 21, from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Halloween at the Heard features a safe environment to experience the joy of trick-or-treating along the eerie Dinosaurs Live! Live-Size Animatronic Dinosaurs trail. Families will enjoy an evening full of fun activities including a presentation of a family-friendly movie on the Heard's outdoor amphitheater stage. Kids ages 12 and under will also have the opportunity to participate in a costume contest.

Those who dare will be able take a trail detour after the movie through our "Haunted Forest" and “Ghost Town” where they may encounter a ghost or creature of the night (not recommended for younger children)! Guests can also have a photo taken in their costumes.

The Heard recommends that guests bring insect repellant, flashlights, water-resistant blankets and/or stadium seats for use during the movie. Concessions will be available for purchase. Guests may also bring their own picnic dinner and non-alcoholic beverages.

Tickets will be available to the public beginning September 29. Tickets for this annual event sold out over a week before the event last year, so the Heard encourages guests to purchase theirs as soon as possible.
